Strategy Overview

The U.S. High Yield strategy combines top-down analysis of macroeconomic conditions with bottom-up fundamental analysis in order to determine where the most attractive valuations exist during the business cycle−considering, country, currency, credit quality, sector allocation, and security selection. Macroeconomic perspective is combined and incorporated with our quantitative screens and fundamental analysis when constructing high yield portfolios. Our valuation process is primarily focused on identifying and investing in bonds that have attractive "real-" and "risk-" adjusted yields. The strategy prudently rotates portfolio positions and seeks to control risk by purchasing undervalued securities.
